Do You Remember the Chicago Cubs? Of course you do!
Well, whether you are a fan or not, there’s a history making, and still record breaking program designed by American Marketing that has broken all records in marketing by a Major League Baseball team.
It was 1982 and the Chicago Cubs were in the cellar. Both in the game and in their marketing rankings with Major League Baseball. It was American Marketing that was invited in by the new owners (Tribune Companies) to solve some revenue problems. The Die-Hard Fan Club was born as an original American Marketing creation. To the fans it was just a fan club. To ownership, it was (and still is) one of the largest fan-related money makers in Major League Baseball history. Old Walt Wilke, our partner’s dad always said he was a “card carrying die-hard Cubs fan”, but he didn’t have the card to prove it. The idea was born and the rest is baseball history, and the record still holds. Wherever the Cubs may be in the rankings of the “game”, they are still one of the top revenue producers of MLB and this simple little fan club started it all.
That was back in 1982. We went on to create membership benefits programs for the Women’s International Tennis Association, the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and a host of others.
Before we settled on our latest internet endeavor, we spent most of our time making millions of dollars for our partners and clients in communications, automotive, corporate finance, health care, wine and spirits, consumer products, hospitality, food and beverages and professional sports. Our client list has included: Illinois Bell, Ameritech and Cellular One. The beverage industry got their share of our creativity at Pepsi-Cola General Bottlers mixing adderall and klonopin, Coke, Dad’s Root Beer, Budweiser, Kahlua, Canadian Club, Sauza Tequila, Cointreau, Domecq, Pernod Ricard and Remy USA. Chrysler Dealers of Chicago, the Associates Commercial Corporation, Hilton Hotels, AM Resorts and a list of others have all benefited from our ideas, creativity and execution.
One fact remains…. we have never stopped the core mission of American Marketing (established 1982).
